Zendaya will star in a new Disney TV series called “K.C. Undercover.” The show revolves around a high school math wiz who is training to be an undercover spy. Kadeem Hardison, Tammy Townsend and Kamil McFadden will co-star alongside Zendaya.
Zendaya will serve as a first time producer on the show. The teenage star discussed the show and the excitement of being a producer.
“Disney presented me with a project about a teenage spy who is normal and discovers that her parents are spies,” Zendaya says. “I thought it was a cool idea and I wanted to be a part of it, not only in front of the camera, but also behind. I wanted to make it the dopest, coolest Disney show ever. I wanted to be a part of the little things from casting to what I wear. That’s where the producing came in and I was very excited that I got to be in that role and that space and also learn in that sense. I had only been in front of the camera and observing what the producers do. And now being able to be in that position and learn from the people around me and figure out how it works was very cool.”
The production on the TV series will begin this summer in Los Angeles.
